i can’t say i’m wild about the cleaning, but when it comes to baking – well, there’s a much bigger incentive isn’t there? firstly, we have a gorgeous little apron by Carolyns Kitchen, costing $38. Living in the UK, i won’t be able to get hold of one, but i can admire it from afar.


next, an ingenious cake mold by Konstantin Slawinski, allowing those with different appetites to be catered for. Lovely.


marimekko in my attic

we were having a good old dig around the cobweb-ridden garage attic, and amidst all the forgotton scuba gear and camping equipment [ahem, long forgotten], we came across some marimekko fabrics form the 1960s.

most of their designs are on fabric rolls, but many were created to be individual artworks in their own right [which were often big enough to cover a large wall]. unfortunately, almost half a century has had its toll and there are various marks on them, but they are really stunning nonetheless, and now hanging in my bedroom. below are some examples of their work. for more information, see their website and the wikipedia article.
